Draft Supreme Court opinion to reverse Roe v Wade published by Politico

Politico claims to have obtained a draught of a majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito that would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Politico claims to have obtained a draught of a majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito that would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Politico says the draught was circulated in early February. Votes and language can change before opinions are formally released. This case's opinion is not expected until late June.

An abortion right guaranteed by the federal constitution would be overturned, according to the draught.

Abolitionists say the ruling would change the landscape of women's reproductive health in America.

Five justices appear to be voting to overturn Roe.

 Chief Justice John Roberts would have dissented from Alito's draught opinion, likely with the court's three liberals.

The five conservative justices who would overturn Roe would be Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.
